Joker-Arroyo-RIP - Joker Arroyo passes away at 88 - Philippine Business News

Former Senator Joker Arroyo is dead. He was 88.

“Yes, confirmed,” a friend and former colleague at the Senate said in a text message to reporters on Wednesday.

Arroyo was a three-term congressman of the 1st District of Makati from 1992 to 1998 before he became senator from 2001 to 2013.

“While in Congress, he remained an independent throughout his term, he never traveled abroad on government money and was known to have a perfect attendance record for nine years from the time he was elected up to the end of his term, according to his biography posted at the official website of the Senate.

“As lead prosecutor during the impeachment trial of President Joseph Estrada, he was remarkable,” it further said.

A human rights lawyer and freedom fighter, Arroyo was among those who questioned before the Supreme Court the ratification of the Marcos-dictated 1973 Constitution; Amendment 6 that empowered President Marcos to exercise law making powers alongside the Batasang Pambansa; the power of military tribunals to try civilians.

He also helped defend political detainees like Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino, Eugenio Lopez Jr., Serge Osmeña III, Jose Ma. Sison, Jovito Salonga, Nene Pimentel, Eva Kalaw, Renato Tañada, Eduardo Olaguer and many others.

“As a freedom fighter, Senator Arroyo has had his share of physical and mental tortures having been incarcerated in a military stockade, gassed, injured and hospitalized during protest rallies,” according to his biography posted at the official website of the Senate.

During the snap elections in 1986, Arroyo served as counsel of the late President Corazon Aquino.

After EDSA I, the late senator held various post in government first as executive secretary in the Aquino cabinet from 1986 to 1992, then as chair of the Philippine National Bank and as executive director for the Philippines in the Asian Development Bank from 1986 to 1990.
